My Own Personal Onion Article: Can't Post

J.R.R. Tolkien re-animated, writes own Hobbit adaptation, fans still refuse to like film:

Earlier this year, J.R.R. Tolkien (author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings), was re-animated by British scientists. He very abruptly sat down at a typewriter and churned out a screenplay for the Hobbit that many said would "be the legitimate alternative to Peter Jackson's abominations." Fans immediately rejoiced until Wednesday when the trailer for Tolkien's adaptation was put out on the internet.

"I thought it was completely not in the spirit of the book" said one Middle-Earth fan, with the screen-name 'Durin'sAxe.'

"I was disappointed" said another fan, screen-name 'OscureCharacterEvenPeopleWhoHaveReadTheBook500TimesHaveNeverHeardOf', "There was no mention of Bilbo smiling on the fortieth page, following the moment he ran in between those two trees... which by the way looked completely unrealistic." This person was not dissuaded by the fact that the two trees he was referring to were actually trees. 'Arwenshouldgetbackinthekitchen67' stated "This is what's wrong with Hollywood, they put things in films like drama, and action, and humor, and character development... completely ruins everything."

Some fans even took extreme measures. Dr. Albert Narula of Oxford University said a study ascertained just this past week showed that some Tolkien fans had actually decided to read the books again and not go see the film. "Roughly five or six Tolkien fans are not seeing the film. This is troubling considering the small amount of money that Warner Brothers will lose from film-goers who would otherwise be spending on a ticket."

An unnamed source told reporters that he would not be going to see the film. "It's an insult to everything Tolkien stood for... before he wrote the screenplay."

Peter Jackson had something to say about all this: "I really, really, from the bottom of my heart don't care. Honestly. I have millions of dollars, thousands of fans who love my films, and I'm buried in Oscars."

Zombie Tolkien was asked for a rebuttal to these criticisms, he simply replied, and I quote: "Ahhhhrrrrrgggghhhhhhhh." Then he went back to typing a Silmarillion screenplay.
